Veterans enrolled in VA healthcare can now access affordable dental insurance.
Veterans Affairs Dental Insurance Program (VADIP)
VA offers dental benefits, however not all veterans are eligible, while others find that treatment may be limited. Typically, to qualify for long-term dental care, a veteran must be 100 percent disabled, a former prisoner of war, or have a service-connected dental disability or condition.
The eligibility for outpatient dental care is not the same as for most other VA medical benefits, however veterans enrolled in VA health care may obtain dental care through the VA Dental Insurance Program (VADIP). VADIP offers eligible individuals the opportunity to purchase discounted dental insurance coverage that includes diagnostic services, preventive services, endodontic and other restorative services, surgical services and emergency services.
Multiple plan options allow individuals to select a plan that provides benefits and premiums that meet their dental needs and budget.
